Custom sorting in App Drawer
Sorting folders and apps in custom way, like TouchWiz. Still allow the option to sort alphabetically and folders first, but make a custom sorting in both App Drawer and inside folders in App Drawer.
In many launchers like Xperia or Galaxy there's the manual rearrangement of the applications in the app drawer. I find it very convenient. The manual arrangement also could be introduced in the folders of the app drawer.
install date (ascending)
install date (descending)
Edit: Don't shout. It makes your message unreadable.

If everyone would just STOP COMPLAINING AND CHECK GOOGLE PLUS one of the devs has said this is something they want to do, but they're gonna try get the pixel launcher stuff out of the way
Nova Launcer 5.0 Beta 1 is on the beta channel, but gues what...
NO CUSTOM SORTING IN APP DRAWER!
A lot of shitty inutile effects are developed for align this version with Pixel Launcher, but one useful option so users to be able to sort they apps as the want is missing!
Come on, this shouldn't even be that hard to do.
One of you probably have a personal grudge against custom sorting.
Otherwise this isn't something that any other developer would ignore.
Why the fuck does this page even exist, why do you assholes ask for feedback if you're gonna ignore a post with this many upvotes, from 2012...
WHEN WHEN WHEN!!
I guess I must not know what you guys are talking about because I have no trouble arranging my icons within a folder anyway I like. The only problem I have is that I cannot lock them in place so if anything funky happens they will get resorted in alphabetical order and that's a pain
This feature request is now marked as started. Marvelous... Hope it is coming soon.
I bought Nova Prime for my Sony Xperia S in 2012. After like 2 or 3 days i decided to uninstall it and never go back to Nova coz no sorting in app drawer.
Today i tried it again for my Sony Z5. I was shocked, when i figured it out there is no SORTING in App Drawer :o after 4 years...
If it's impossible to do - why do they even let ppl vote for this "idea" and waste their time checking this page :<
At least they can implement it for their Prime users.
All these votes and still nothing...
After trying several launchers I purchased Nova Launcher Prime, because I liked it over Apex, Action, Go. I was really disappointed that I couldn't custom sort my apps in the App Drawer. I could still get a refund. This issue was reported over a year ago and still no custom sorting in the App Drawer. Perhaps I should give up and get a refund...
I paid for the Prime version thinking that it have this feature. But it truly disappoint me when I noticed this feature was missing. And I totally don't understand after looking at so many people requested for this feature yet nobody from Nova team react to our request.
Are you not aware of our request or you simply don't want to include this feature ?
Please tell us and don't leave us in frustration!!
It just Yes or No !!
This feature was something i really wanted since the stock android launcher doesn't have this feature, it needs to be fixed, because it's the main reason people consider buying a different app drawer. So if you don't fix it I think you will miss a lot of potential buyers.
How hard can it even be? If its hard to do because they didnt plan the background for it you can just cheat by putting something like [##05##] behind the icons (meaning 5th icon in the current tab) and then hide it when you are showing the names.

It will be awesome
It would be nice if nova launcher defs gave us an status update. I cant judge how difficult this is but as the started a year and a half ago that would be the least they could do

Come on Nova, this should be your top priority.
Please Add Custom Sorting
Yes exactly @Aslanoo, Apex Launcher does already have this feature. If Apex can at least implement it so should Nova. I don't like how it's done on Apex though. The rearranging should be done in the app drawer while it is open. NOT in the Settings.
guys buy apex launcher! has this feature and a lot more. Nova has nothing but it's name
